Please Join The Gist of Freedom as we welcome Adam Tulloch from Great Britian's Production of the play ‘Olaudah Equiano, The Enslaved African’

 

Olaudah Equiano Survived The Middle Passage, purchased his freedom, became a black abolitionist  and  authored the first known  Enslaved African Narrative . He was a famous proponent of British abolitionism and worked with William Wilberforce.  His story is featured in the movie Amazing Grace.

  Following its success at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, ‘Olaudah Equiano, The Enslaved African’ will be transferring to Sutton House from the 26th-29th November.

Kidnapped with his sister at the age of eleven, Equiano is beaten, suffocated and tortured on their journey to the coast, which sees him separated from his sister and sold to British traders.
 
Set in the heart of West Africa during the height of the British slave trade, ‘Olaudah Equiano, The Enslaved African’ is an honest, uncompromising and moving portrayal of Olaudah Equiano’s early life.

Please note this is a site-specific production with no wheelchair access. The production also contains scenes of a violent nature and is therefore only suitable for those over the age of 16.
